About me

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist with 10 years experience working in a variety of Counselling settings within the NHS, charities and public sector organisations. I am also a Practitioner Member of COSCA.

I offer CBT/Counselling sessions in Glasgow West End (with on street parking and handy as just off the M8, also City Centre Glasgow with on street parking (metres) and very handy for public transport)

Although I am qualified and practice Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I am also qualified in Mindfulness and Bereavement and Loss. I am constantly building my knowledge and am an active member of the BABCP, attending many CBT learning events per year in order to keep up to date with specific approaches to counselling and of course to learn new skills which become very helpful in therapy in order to offer my clients the best therapy, taylor made for them, to suit THIER needs.

During my work in the public sector I wrote, developed, delivered and facilitated several therapeutic and psycho educational groups on addictions, bereavement and loss, anxiety and low mood/depression. I continue to develop this work and aim to facilitate similar groups within private practice in the future.

My background prior to qualifying as a CBT Therapist is in Psychology where I worked in residential childrens units, secure units for teenagers and supported accomodation for adults with learning difficulties and behavioural issues. Since then I have focussed on adult mental health issues such as Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Relationship issues, Self Esteem and Confidence issues.

I am passionate about working with my clients in order for them to understand and overcome lifes issues, get back on track, re-claim their focus, self esteem and confidence whist managing and overcoming a variety of mental health issues.

We live in such a fast pace modern society, with so many expectations in work and our personal lives that are sometimes stressful and even unachievable, this itself can lead to feelings of sadness, lonliness, inadequacy, low self esteem and confidence issues. Anxiety is now present in most peoples lives and can sometimes be crippling and begin to effect the other parts in our lives such as relationships and work performance.

My aim is always to use a practical approach to your issues whist we explore and understand the reasons for these and then create plans to work towards your more desirable goals, facilitating YOUR effective and positive changes that will allow you to fully reach your potential, regain control and find the balance that YOU want. Within this approach the reduction of anxiety and depression can be found and self esteem and confidence raised.

I also offer online 1:1 CBT/Counselling via SKYPE if Glasgow is not suitable or you just prefer to be in your own home for counselling.
